Dermol 200 is a moisturising shower emollient which can be used instead of regular soap. Dermol moisturises and protects the skin against irritating conditions such as eczema and dermatitis. Unlike some soaps, Dermol 200 doesn't remove your body’s natural oils. This means that your skin can retain its moisture and stop from drying out.

Aside from maintaining your skins moisture levels, Dermol 200 acts as an antiseptic, helping to keep scaly and itchy skin at bay. Dermol 200 can be used either when washing or applied to the skin directly as a dry moisturiser.

Acting as both an antimicrobial and an emollient, Dermol 200 can be easily integrated into your normal washing routine. And it’s even safe for the kids to use. Dermol can be used as both a treatment and a preventative measure for skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis.

Dermol 200 treats your skin conditions with two active ingredients:

  • Benzalkonium Chloride
  • Chlorhexidine Dihydrochloride.

These two ingredients are antimicrobials and work by attacking any harmful bacteria on your skin which is causing it to inflame and itch.

Dermol 200 shower emollient also includes two moisturising agents:

  • Liquid Paraffin 
  • Isopropyl Myristate

These two ingredients work to soften and moisturise the skin. They do this by helping to protect your body's natural moisture, promoting a healthier skin and preventing it from drying out.

Apply directly to the skin or while washing as often as required

Most people will not experience any negative side effects associated with using Dermol 200 shower emollient, however potential side effects can include:

  • Redness of the skin.
  • Increased itching or irritation.

Always read the packaging and product information before using any medication. If you have any concerns about this product or its potential side effects, speak to your doctor before use.

In order to make sure that Dermol 200 is the right product for you, please read the following warnings carefully.

Dermol 200 should not be used if you are allergic to any of the ingredients listed above.

As with most medications, severe allergic reactions are possible in certain individuals. In these rare cases, individuals can experience a drop in blood pressure and even become unconscious.

Do not use Dermol 200 if you have had a bad experience with any products containing chlorhexidine before.

Always use Dermol 200 with care. If you have sensitive skin, consider only treating a small test area at first, to see if any adverse side effects occur. This is an even more important consideration when dealing with children. After this you are free to use Dermol 200 as and when required.

Special care should be taken not to get any Dermol in your eyes.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What can Dermol 200 be used for?

    Dermol can be used for any conditions which make the skin dry and itchy.

  • How exactly does Dermol 200 work?

    Dermol 200 works by taking advantage of the four main ingredients listed above. These ingredients work together to create a waterproof barrier on the skin’s surface, preventing moisture from being lost and helping your skin retain its moisture. It also acts as an antiseptic, targeting problem bacterium on the skin's surface, and decreasing irritation.

    Dermol can be used as a soap substitute or applied directly to the skin as a moisturiser. After you have washed, always make sure to gently pat your body, rather than rubbing it dry, as this will increase irritation.

  • Is there anything I should watch out for when using Dermol 200?

    When using Dermol in conjunction with a bath or shower, take extra care not to slip. It is possible that Dermol might make the bath or shower slipperier than usual.
